A couple of months ago our cerebral poster emiC won a GS trivia game by answering a mathematics question from ancient Egypt. The prize was a CD sent to her favorite skater for her/his birthday. EmiC's favorite skater is Jenny Kirk, and in August Jenny will receive a three CD collection of violin concertos performed by Hilary Hahn. Don't be surprised to see Jenny skating to the Beethoven, Brahms or Mendelssohn concertos next season.:lol:
Our resident musicologist Eltamina suggested that this would be a fun off-season game, a trivia contest with the prize being a CD sent as a birthday present to the winner's favorite skater. Eltamina has volunteered to choose (and buy!) the prizes, with music that reflects the personality and skating style of the recipient. Since these are real prizes, the questions are hard. Most of the questions will be about music, but I will start out with one about mathematics. Be the first to count the rabbit ears and claim your prize:
Farmer Bean keeps a mixed population of ducks and rabbits. One morning he counted them, and came up with a total of 310 heads and 758 feet. How many ears were there?
